When their faith becomes your faith, victory!
When their faith becomes your faith, victory! The future is in the past. Early Christians took a beating. They believed in Jesus. By unveiling the plan in the book of Revelation we will view the example of the spiritual forefathers.
The ancient Christians are experiencing persecution by Jewish leadership, followed by Roman tyranny. Imprisoned because they believe in Jesus.
They take a beating from the Jewish synagogue. Jesus calls them the synagogue of Satan!
Romans massacre Christians along with what they perceive to be a Jewish sect. Nero uses them as a scapegoat because He claims they are to fault for Rome burning.
The principles in Revelation are applicable to overcoming the stigma a genuine Christian life in the 21st Century. Are people blaming you for you didn’t do?
People win because Christ conquers the beast and the synagogue of Satan.
Little known secrets in the book of Revelation are unsealing a spectacular victory in the face of opposition.

History in the book of Acts is the backdrop for immense suffering, as we utilize Scripture to interpret Scripture. Correspondingly, the importance to us is the future is bright. We win in Jesus. Thus, past principles apply today.
These principles of yester-centuries clearly present lessons for us. For example, the devil is active today seeking to devour souls – just as he was then.
Corona virus is like a plague on the world right now. We are in a crisis. The good news is Jesus binds Satan with the Gospel. The Gospel of Jesus liberates souls from enslavement to evil and sin. Our Lord has the keys to death and Hades. The deceiver has fooled the world. The saving Son of God sits on the throne of truth. He reigns in the disciples’ hearts. Ideals like this one are applicable both in the ancient church and for the modern person. Revelation gives us a synopsis of what true bravery is. Trusting in the all power Master of souls. That is where the principles of the past apply to Christians today.
We have a crown and white robes waiting. That’s where the concepts of the past move modern saints.
In light of our salvation, we must act now before time runs out. Revelation especially emphasizes when Jesus returns in the final judgment, we can be like the ancient Christians. Saved!

Appreciating a partial preterist view of Revelation because it makes sense.
Preterist means the events of Revelation are in the past. We do not believe the full preterist view that every prophecy in the Bible is in the past. Our conviction is to avoid such folks. We are partial preterists. Partial preterists are futurists. Jesus is coming in Judgment on the world. The Lord is going to come in Judgment.
